Just wondering if there are any other people beginning around this time, there will be two of us walking the whole route.

I’m starting Oct 20-21 from Pamplona. First time and going solo. Very nervous. I’d love to meet people!

The OP was leaving in 2018. He might be a bit ahead of you, but I am fairly sure that you will find others along the way. It won't be as crowded as it would be in the summer. There is a big drop in the numbers arriving in Santiago in November, which is when you would be arriving. Last year there were 120 pilgrims registered as having started in Pamplona, and many more will join along the way. There were just over 4700 pilgrims travel on the Camino Frances in Nov 18.
